Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Larry Kramer’s landmark play about love and loss in the 1980s chronicles the rise of the AIDS crisis in New York City, seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks as he battles against a world unwilling to confront the epidemic.

The Normal Heart’s call to arms caught audiences by storm when it was first performed in 1985. It became the longest-running play in the history of New York’s Public Theater, and is widely considered to be one of the most significant plays of the 20th century. Today, this document of recent history is as relevant and powerful as it ever was – a reminder that battles for justice, equality and dignity are not just things of the past.

Studio 180 was pleased to work in association with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre once again, seven years after partnering to bring Toronto audiences our acclaimed production of The Laramie Project.
